Tadeusz Kosciuszko Statue in Boston


Boston-area Polish organizations commissioned this bronze statue by local sculptor Theo Alice Ruggles Kitson to memorialize the 150th anniversary of Kosciuszko's enlistment in the Continental Army. Kitson depicts Kocuiszko in uniform, holding a tricorner hat in one hand and a volume of papers from West Point in the other. Over the course of her career, Kitson designed more than fifty public monuments. She was also the first female artist to receive an Honorable Mention award at the Paris Salon, a prestigious annual exhibition. Courtesy of Boston Art Commission.
